The Tuesday, May 9, 2017 edition of The Janesville Gazette contained a feature story about Rock University High School.

"[Tom] Murphy is an ordinary kid who found his niche at Rock University High School. The high school . . . designed for students interested in global studies and foreign languages.  

In 2014, the program evolved into a charter school for sophomores, juniors and seniors. This year, it moved to Blackhawk Technical College, where it has been warmly embraced by the college's administration. The atmosphere is more like college, and students must be able to work independently.

During their senior year, students do a capstone project, which designed to showcase their knowledge on a particular topic using the interdisciplinary approach. The complexity of the curriculum attracted Murphy."
